Artful Dodge Discussion

Hey, thanks for the reply and support! I will eventually use something like Distortion Strike, Slip Through Space, Artful Dodge or Spirit Mantle to make Yavimaya Enchantress unblockable. I just have to see what to sub out and how my first rounds with this deck go. I had very good results with the Selesnya version of this deck, but I feel this one has better synergy and reliability.

As with my other decks, I'll be constantly updating it every time I find a more successful way of doing things.

Thanks again for the comment!

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! Have you considered Lightning Bolt as a very efficient removal spell, or perhaps Assault Strobe in place of Armed / Dangerous? I also prefer Slip Through Space to Artful Dodge, and I'm a big fan of using Serum Visions to smooth your draws. Also, Mana Leak and Remand are two of the best counterspells in Modern, due to their efficiency. Good luck!

Counterspell is also very much illegal in Modern. Try Condescend, Remand or Mana Leak.

Artful Dodge could help making creatures unblockable though I doubt youll need it.

Cold-Eyed Selkie could also be good draw.

Hey mate,

Yes, my meta is a little creature light right now, lot of my local players are playing control, combo (like cheating out Emrakul), 8Rack or Death's Shadow. I'm also in a small city, so my meta isn't healthy to begin with. My latest consideration for my meta is to swap out something for Dimir Cutpurse and some evasion like Aqueous Form or Artful Dodge...

That said, when I was vs Humans, Werewolves, Elves etc, there was MB removal. I'd probably revert to Rattlechains and Topplegeist then too. Maybe Midnight Haunting, Beckon Apparition...their synergy with Nebelgast Herald is pretty good, as is Essence Flux. I MB'ed Essence Flux for a long time, it's well worth testing.

I'm currently finding (in my current meta), between Remand, Spell Queller and Nebelgast Herald (and the last 2 flash on their own), I can usually disrupt decently.

Curiosity is awesome on our evasive Spirits mate, can't recommend it enough. Even if it's on an early Mausoleum Wanderer or Selfless Spirit, even getting 2 cards out of it is huge tempo.

I've found Aqueous Form to be more beneficial than Artful Dodge because of the scry ability!

wonderboyrox on What? Where'd that come from?!

I agree with the previous comments about Aqueous Form > Artful Dodge, for two reasons.. One, Scry is a very powerful ability to have, even moreso when you have it on a stick. And two, I find that I bounce my "enablers" far more than I bounce my ninjas.. So I don't risk losing my creature enchants. Also, I run creature protection, so kill spells aren't as much of an issue.

Here is my version: --> Sneaky Ninjas
